Attempting to conquer one of the last "firsts" available to explorers, Levison Wood set out to walk the entire length of the Nile River, a distance of more than 4200 miles, crossing through seven very different countries. The former soldier camps in the wild, forages for food, and fends for himself in a rigorous test of his endurance and determination. And yet, as Wood recounts in his memoir, it is also a journey through the history of the Nile, and the people he meets along the way reveal the story of modern Africa emerging from the past.

"Wood is a sharp observer and authoritative writer.... A bold travelogue, illuminating great swathes of modern Africa."—Kirkus Reviews
